WHEN IT RAINS, IT POURS BLESSINGS AND TROUBLE


The changing weather patterns in Kenya are worrisome. In Kenya, mid-March to the end of April comes with heavy and sufficient downpour all over.

Before the onset of any rainy period, prior planning is needed especially in urban areas and slums areas that experience related challenges any time it rains.

The flash floods that have severely affected infrastructure in the city have happened for only two weeks and the weathermen are predicting that it might last longer.

Other challenges that have been witnessed are the spread of diseases such as cholera in the city, blocking of drainage systems, flooding roads and houses among others.

Our project in Westlands Sub County also is not left behind. It will be affected in one way or the other but it's about the time we come up with clear strategies on how to counter the problems expected.

First, the digging of pit latrines for the toilets is going to be extremely hard with the rains hitting us on a daily basis. 

The healing of the bathroom walls and other cement related works are likely to face challenges. This too needs brains so that we continue with the construction works without being interrupted.

The rains have brought blessings to millions of farmers who have been waiting for it. On the other side, it is trouble for contractors who should be dashing against time

定期的に雨が降ることは農民にとっては恵みの雨とありますが、工事業者にとっては大変です。因みに西アフリカのサブサハラでは雨が殆どなく旱魃が常態でした。

日本でもゲリラ豪雨という言葉が当たり前の表現となり、5月になってから府中市でビー玉サイズのひょうが降ったそうです。
気象や治水といったことに対しては、かなりおおがかりな対策が必要ですが、それ以外でもできることからやっていきたいですね。
